Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on August 25, 2021, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.
Myles Feather Earring, age 37, was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.
Feather Earring was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 6, 2021. He pled guilty on June 8, 2021.
The conviction stems from Feather Earring failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between January 7, 2021, and February 9, 2021. Feather Earring had previously been convicted of a sex offense in federal court which requires him to register for the rest of his life.
This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper prosecuted the case.
Feather Earring was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
